Housewife of the Year Documentary Premiere

A new documentary surrounding ‘Housewife of the Year’ is set to premiere at the Galway Film Festival on the 12th of July

Housewife of the Year tells the story of Ireland’s treatment of women through the prism of a unique, surreal, live-televised competition, that has to be seen to be believed. A generation of Irish women competed in front of a live audience for the title of “Housewife of the Year”.

The former contestants share their direct experiences of marriage bars, lack of contraception, Magdalene laundries, financial vulnerability, boredom and shame, and of course, of being contestants in the competition. It is a poignant, often hilarious, uplifting story of a resilient generation of women, and how they changed a country
